the night. the first moves into pennsylvania and weakened and then transfer energy to a system that is going to roll up the coast but that happens too late for this to be a major snowmaker for most of us here. a wide swath of snow from the storm from west virginia into new england. as far as accumulations are concerned one to three inches from columbus and then into pittsburgh and new york city picking up a quick one to three inches through the afternoon when the snow arrives but then boston is where things get interesting as the storm rapidly strengthens off the coast. snow will intensify as we get through the day and then especially the coasts of new england, cape cod into boston we could pick up snow in the 3-6-inch range and then the storm continues to strengthen and drags in north and west temperatures only going to fall. as far as the temperatures right now quite cold across the midwest and thorn plains and we are at 18 currently minneapolis. for tomorrow here. and winter is certainly here and here to stay. that cold air will continue to filter in as we track on past new year's day and

a big big portion of the problem. thank you. host: what energy end of the year energy issues are we looking at here and which ones are likely to get punted down the road? guest: that's a good question. i'm not sure what energy issues -- i'm not aware of any -- host: tax issues? guest: tax issues for the fiscal cliff. but going down the road you definitely have some issues. there's the need for a new highway bill, they've had trouble tasking the highway legislation because no one is willing to increase the gas tax. and our gas taxes are the main ways we pay for new roads and bridges and that kind of thing. so i think that's a relatively short-term problem. and then over the long term, which i've talked about here before, is that given that we're going to need some rev now help solve our future fiscal burden, one of the most sensible places to raise revenue would be through a carbon tax or something similar because that can also help us reorient our energy priorities to cleaner, less damaging greenhouse gases type of energy. host: i want to note that you can go to the c-span fiscal cl

eastern sections of north carolina. as this energy works its way offshore, we'll be watching for the energy to travel from the midwest further off to the coast. chicago, you're getting light snow at this hour. you're getting plenty of snow across western pennsylvania, but i want to zoom into areas in the northeast where we're expecting the snow to accumulate going through much of. evening hours. so we have winter weather advisories across the heartland all the way down through the mountains of virginia, and then you can see, we have four to six inch bes for much of new york state as well as into connecticut and new york. not necessarily new york city getting as hard-hit with this storm. several inches expected. what's fastcinating when talkin about a nor'easter system, as it develops off the coast, depending where the low pressure is centered, that will determine how much snow cities like boston and providence get. but the latest computer modelling are saying we could see six inches or more for the boston area. that's why a winter storm warning is now in place. so the snow wi

issue from the panama canal treaties to the energy legislation where byrd worked tirelessly on it to get it done without a filibuster. he had the sense that the senate leader should have a special relationship with the president and that is the way the system was supposed to work. of course, the most important in for the senate leader is to make the senate work. byrd knew the senate rules better than any person that ever lived. he lived in dealing with the notion of the fear of a paralyzed senate. he wanted to think that the rules worked, but he knew that in fact jim allen of alabama had cracked the code. he had figured out how to have this filibuster so the senate could be tied up in paralyzed. robert byrd like to think you have to be an expert to do this, but it turned out you do not need to be an expert at all. a couple of senators did not know the rules and they tied the senate up. byrd struggled with the notion of how to keep the unique character of the senate without having a paralyzed? in that regard, he championed rules change. he got some done in 1979. he knew that the senate ru

, tom putnam, who brings such energy to library's mission of preserving our nation's history. and our good friend we always love having with us, john. the president used a dictaphone to record his personal observations following key meetings and events. we thought they would all enjoy in the actual dictaphone that he used as senator before becoming president. we put it on the stage and we invite you can look at it after the form. this is the real thing, this is what he used in the senate. the one he used as president is now in the archives. over the years come we have welcomed many individuals to the state who have worked for president kennedy. those who vote for him and served in navy and knew him as a friend. they all have their own take and interpretation of what happened, their own spin. now it is the term of president kennedy. a principal speaker tonight, of which we invite you to listen to. it is that of president kennedy. many see this is the one president kennedy never had the opportunity to write. it is now my great pleasure to introduce the individual who is most responsible
lightbulbs. the cfl bulb and l.e.d. bulb is replacing them. the idea is to reduce energy use by 75%. >> l.e.d.'s, the biggest claim to fame is that they last a really long time. we're talking about 25,000 to 50,000 hours. and to put that in perspective, if you put a lightbulb in your child's nursery, you probably wouldn't have to change it until junior was ready to go to college. >> the 100-watt bulbs have been phased out. the 60- and 40-watt versions will disappear later. >>> speaking of green initiatives, this is a way to get rid of a real christmas tree. in rhode island, a petting zoo is letting the animals chow down on them. the simons farm has 50 goats and they into pine, apparently. the next thing the farm crew knew, the cows and sheep were sharing the feast. >> everyone hates to like, you know, they have their live tree. what do i do with it when it's done? i hate to throw it away. there is a good alternative. >> the farmhands say it's great timing because the animals have eaten all of the leaves off of the trees and the grass in the area, so there was not much left for them to mon
. it impacts those of us concerned about the energy and security of this country because the farm bill contains ways to promote alternate energy sours, ways to create a biofuel industry that is robust and creates consumer choice. for those concerned about exports connected to the agricultural exports, we lose the ability to market exports without a farm bill. if you're concerned about the ability to add adequate nutrition and supporter of farmer's markets and want to see an expansion of that, can't do it because there is no farm bill. if you like the idea of fields expanding habitat opportunities or you like to hunt and you like to fish, your hobby, your vocation, if you will, in that area will also be affected by no farm bill because a lot of the programs are not extended. if you're a farm family, you're going to be impacted. so there is an impact and an effect by not having a farm bill. >> congress has three options before the end of the year to prevent the price spike and everything that comes with it. they could either extend the current bishlg pass a new bill or some kind of provision to k
. what's going to happen with this system is the main low is going to transfer its energy to the coast and that is going to become the primary storm that's going to rise up the eastern seaboard and probably pretty significant places below. but even the major i-95 cities like new york, philly and boston will see significant snow from this. >> what happens here? how much worse is it here than in the rest of the country? >> well, you know, this storm was fairly weak before nowhere near as strong as the last one was. this is finally getting its act together. >> get our shovels and boots out? that's the idea? >> yeah. and as far as the snowfall totals we're expecting to see, probably the major cities could get in on the action. that's how different it was from the last system. so new york city three, four, five inches of snow not out of the question. upstate new york especially where it's a little colder, but as we head toward southeastern new england, that's where the real bull's eye could be. some places could pick up a foot of snow. that's going to cause travel he
throughout today and tonight. let's break it down. you see the low sliding off the coast. getting energy if the west. it becomes intense and stays to the south of new england. now with that flow, we're getting the winds coming from the north, picking up the moisture from the atlantic. that's why eastern massachusetts, if you can see the brighter white here, indicates a little bit more intense snowfall. it is still something we're monitoring because the as the low slides east or west, that would impacts how much rain versus how much snow you get in new england. whether you're in new england or not, you'll face some travel troubles today. we have airport delays forecast for the northeast, the mid-atlantic, the midwest. and even down here in the south, we had delays in charlotte this morning. and on the west coast, we could see delays, low clouds and rain even in los angeles. busy travel weekend. lots of weather coast to coast that will impact millions of people. >> no escaping it, huh? >> no. >> thanks. >>> tax hikes, spending cuts, and the u.s. economy caught right in the middle. we can o
